Windows 10 is set to be released on July 29th, and the OS will be available for free to Windows 7/8.1 users from July 29th. However, if you’re planning to get a new device running Windows 10 on July 29, you may be disappointed. In an interview with Bloomberg, Microsoft’s vice president of Windows and device marketing, Yusuf Mehdi stated:
“You will see computers running with Windows 10 installed very soon after the 29th and then in the fall a whole new class of machines for the holidays,”
To be honest, this shouldn’t really be a surprise as the Microsoft is expected to deliver Windows 10 RTM (Release to manufacturing) to OEMs this Wednesday and the company already delayed the first RTM release date. It’s worth noting that Dell is shipping a couple of its Windows PCs with Windows 10 pre-installed on July 30 – customers who pre-ordered the devices by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time on July 29, will get free next-business-day shipping.
